Prince George, Princess Charlotte announced as page boy, bridesmaid in royal wedding

If you've been tuning in to Royal Wedding Watch so far, there's one unmistakeable clear theme: the rebellious personalities of Harry and Meghan, in contrast to former royal weddings, will ultimately find a balance with royal wedding traditions.

He had hoped to walk his daughter down the aisle during the meticulously-planned ceremony at Windsor Castle's St. George's Chapel on Saturday, "but now he realises it's all but impossible given the upcoming surgery", TMZ said. "She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr. Markle in this hard situation".

May 15 - Thomas Markle says he will attend the royal wedding.

Harry's press secretary, Jason Knauf, said earlier this month that all of the bridesmaids and page boys would be children. She is also said to have helped Meghan select her wedding gown.

Though this alleged party plan is not incredibly surprising - considering Prince Harry has a long history with wild celebrations - what is a bit perplexing is the fact that Prince Charles is reportedly footing the bill for the bash. Thomas planned to try to get out of the hospital in time to travel to the United Kingdom for the royal wedding, telling TMZ he hated the idea of "missing one of the greatest moments in history" and walking his daughter down the aisle.

Meghan's mother is set to stay with her in Windsor Castle the night before the wedding and then ride in the vehicle with her to the church.

Mr Markle said his daughter had tried to call him on Tuesday but he didn't have his phone on him, according to the celebrity news site.

Meghan Markle's mother, Doria Ragland, is expected to visit with the queen and senior royals this week before the wedding.

"This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding", the statement read.

And while there has been nonstop speculation about the dress, the guest list, and several other details of the royal wedding, many people are also wondering what Meghan Markle's new title will be once she becomes a royal.

Ms Ragland is reportedly "barely speaking" to her estranged husband following the staged photos fiasco.

Thomas Markle is still recovering in an undisclosed hospital, and there is no word on when he will be released. According to reports, the operation was successful, but he has to remain in the hospital for a couple more days. She has previously told the programme she has not seen Markle for two decades.
